Mmm...Chocolate for Breakfast

Fran's chocolates opens this morning in the new Four Seasons Hotel (on 1st and Union).

The sleek, ultra-modern shop will offer Fran Bigelow's award-winning chocolates, of course, as well as espresso, hot chocolate, and port pairings. Yes. Port pairings!

Listen to Fran explain here

What also sets this new shop (run by Fran's daughter Andrina and son Dylan) from its U-Village and Bellevue siblings is that it's more of a cafe with places to sit, sip, and relax.

Oh, and there's also this great portrait of Fran's five-year-old granddaughter hanging in the entry, composed entirely of Fran's candies (you have to get up really close to appreciate it):

The shop is open 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. M-Sat and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays.
